Application Fees

A nonrefundable application fee must accompany each new application for admission before it will be processed. The application fee for U.S. citizens and permanent residents is $65; for international applicants the fee is $80. Credit card payments may be made with online applications at the Graduate School’s website. After admission, no fee will be assessed for subsequent applications requesting a change of program area, change of degree objective within the program of study, or change of status from non-degree to a degree program. If a student applies but does not enroll within 12 months of the requested entrance date, a new application and an accompanying appropriate fee must be submitted.

Auditing courses

Auditing a course does not affect the rate charged for the course.
